Opera Laurier students travel through history in an exciting triple bill, including short operas by three living Canadian women composers: Monica Pearce, Cecilia Livingston, and a premiere by Ashley Seward, co-commissioned by Opera Laurier with Loose Tea Music Theatre.
Opera Laurier is thrilled to present an exciting triple bill, including productions of Monica Pearce’s Etiquette, Cecilia Livingston’s Singing Only Softly, and the exciting premiere of Ashley Seward’s Borderless, a new work co-commissioned by Opera Laurier and Loose Tea Music Theatre (LTMT). Directed by Loose Tea Music Theatre Founder and Executive Artistic Director Alaina Viau, these three stunning works are tied together to carry you through history from a female composer’s perspective. The performances will be accompanied by Music Director Emily Hamper and Opera Diploma student Marko Pejanovic. Set designer Holly Meyer-Dymny has partnered with Viau to create an incredibly versatile set, with the ability to seamlessly transform into the three strikingly different points of history the show inhabits. With costume realizations done by Inez Khan, this show promises an immersion into history through a feminine lens.
